If you’ve watched right wing politics at all, Rudy Giuliani’s latest statements will come as no surprise — now he’s painting himself as a persecuted victim after his ugly comments that President Obama “doesn’t love America.”
The former New York mayor told CNN on Friday that the majority of the calls about his remarks have been supportive, including from Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a likely 2016 Republican presidential candidate.
But Giuliani also said that his office secretary had reported receiving death threats since POLITICO first published his remarks late Wednesday night. Giuliani didn’t tell CNN if he had alerted police to those calls, and a New York Police Department spokeswoman contacted Saturday said it is department policy not to release any information about potential victims.
